AAA Patrol of the Year Award

This year Garfield School had the honor of presenting the AAA Outstanding Safety Patrol of the Year to their own Kasper Szymczak!  Kasper was chosen amongst dozens of patrol nominees in Northern New Jersey.  Kasper’s patrol advisors, Jayme Mack, Rebecca Lonnay and Stephanie Gerbasio, nominated him because of his dedication to his position, his school and his peers.   Kasper is a very enthusiastic and kind patrol to all those attending the school.  Kasper has formed strong trustworthy bonds with his peers as well as the members of our staff.  He is conscientious about his responsibilities and continuously attended them all year long.  Garfield School was lucky to have such a dependable young man amongst an already amazing group of patrols.

On May 24, 2016, Stephen Rajczyk from AAA came to Garfield School to recognize Kasper for his accomplishments.  He was given a plaque as well as a $200 check as an award.

The Garfield Community is extremely proud of Kasper for achieving this honor.  He has a bright future and we’re looking forward to seeing what else this incredible, young man has to offer!

A picture is worth a thousand words!

 

Judging from these pictures, Lincoln Middle School students were totally engaged in their art work.  Fifteen members of Mr. Falcone’s Comic Book Club participated in an end-of-year trip to Blackbird Studio located in Jersey City. The students learned about technique, tools, and color and each painted their own Ironman on canvas under the direction of  Christian Masot.

Christian Masot definitely has something in common with the students.  In addition to sharing a passion for drawing and painting, he attended the Kearny Public Schools and  is a  graduate of Franklin School and Kearny High School. He owns Blackbird Studio with wife Alexandra Masot, and both are Kearny residents. 

Comic Book Club members attended weekly after-school meetings at Lincoln Middle School, where they researched, discussed, wrote, and created all things that interested them in the genres of comic books and graphic novels. Funding for the Comic Book Club was provided through a Montclair State University Teacher Incentive Grant. 


Colonial Garden Project

 
 

Lincoln Middle School students grew vegetables for staple crops and indigo for a cash crop as part of their "Colonial Garden Project." Working with Social Studies and Science teachers, students researched the colonial garden, started plants indoors and tended to them in a green house until they were ready to be planted outdoors.  Students tilled the land and added a native wild flower garden. Funding for the garden was provided through Teacher Incentive Grants from Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal.

KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT  - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

Tectonic Engineering & Surveying Consultants P.C. has completed the pilot sampling and analysis of potable water collected from multiple Point of Use (POU) points at a total of seven (7) Kearny Schools. The sampling was performed to verify the quality of drinking water provided to Kearny Schools, specifically the levels of lead. This initial pilot test was implemented as a recommended progressive approach in conjunction with public communication.

Sampling and analysis of drinking water points of use (POUs) for lead was performed by Kearny Board of Education (KBOE)  all district public schools in response to public concerns.

Based on the testing results, the levels of lead found in the water taken from all sample points did not exceed appropriate limits. The reported lead concentrations were compared to both the public water service AL and the schools-recommended CL value.


Lead was not detected above the recommended  AL  of  15 PPB  or the  CL of  20 PPB in

Any of the fourteen (14)  POUs from a total of seven (7) different facilities

New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) has prepared a Student Loan Guide to be distributed to New Jersey high school students.  In January 2013 legislation was passed by the New Jersey Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christie requiring HESAA to provide a booklet/brochure and directing high schools to annually disseminate it to each student in the 11th and 12th grades.

        In accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:71A-35, attached below is the Student Loan Guide e-booklet link below.
